Gobi ki kheer Recipe - Cauliflower Kheer



You may have made a Cauliflower ki sabzi or baked cauliflower with cheese but have you tried to make a Cauliflower ki Kheer / Gobi ki Kheer? Well, on my quest to discover new recipes and experiment in the kitchen, I tried to make a different sweet dish for on Sunday. And yes, it turned out better than what I had expected.


Gobi ki kheer

 The use of fruits and vegetables in desserts is very common in Indian cuisine. Carrots and Pumpkin get turned into Halwa.  But some others like Beetroot and cauliflower are also worth exploring.


Gobi ki kheer

This is a simple recipe but I assure you it's so delicious. There will be no confusion so read on and execute this lip-smacking treat in your kitchen. Let your family guess the ingredients. Trust me they will be asking for more- it is a total treat.

To make 4 servings
Time – 40 minutes, including prep time

Ingredients
 400-gram cauliflower (gobi)
¾  litre full cream milk
1 teaspoon Cardamon powder ( Elaichi)
1/2 Cup sugar or any sweetener substitute
100 gms grated paneer




 For Garnish:
A handful of chopped almonds, cashew nuts, raisins, and dried fruits. 




Gobi ki kheer


Method
1. First, take the cauliflower head and wash it properly. Cut the cauliflower in big chunks and then grate it on a hand grater. Or just skin it in a vegetable chopper. Let it be coarse.
2. Keep the milk to boil and add the sugar to it. Stir and let is boil on medium flame.
3. In another vessel add the cauliflower and bring to a boil for 5 minutes. The smell will go away and the cauliflower will not curdle when added to milk.
4. Now strain the cauliflower and add to the boiling milk.
5. Simmer and let the two blend and cook for five minutes.
6. Add the grated paneer and elaichi powder. Simmer and further cook. Keep stirring to see that it doesn’t burn at the bottom.
7. Simmer the kheer on a low heat until the cauliflower ki kheer gets a creamy consistency. Turn off the heat.
8. Chop up the nuts and add it to the kheer when slightly cooler. Keep some aside for garnish.
9. Now serve the Gobi Ki Kheer chilled and watch everyone lick the dessert bowl clean.

 Note
Paneer is an option to make the dish rich. You can use khoya/mawa instead or avoid it totally.
Use Sugar free or honey if want a sugar free option but not jaggery.
Saffron also enhances the taste but I did not have, so did not use in this recipe.
